I Found True GRIT in Central Park.

My family and I are in NYC on vacation.  The day we arrived we did a CrossFit workout at the Black Box.  You don’t have to do anything but show up 10 minutes early.  Thought we were doing “Barbie” but ended up doing a BUNCH of deadlifts!  Had a great workout!  Michael and this other guy(I never got his name..) were EXCELLENT instructors.  The gym was 3 floors up in an old building.  Nothing fancy, just perfect!  My afterbash was in Bryant Park with a red wine sangria.

Later, we went to Hershey.  I bought dark chocolate kisses thinking they would be healthier, but my hand keeps finding itself in my son’s reese minitures bag!!!

I found true GRIT the next morning while running with my husband in Central Park.  It made that perfect crunchy sound under my shoes with each stride I took.  I love that sound.  Running behind Stephen always sucks but the first mile didn’t suck as much since I was in CENTRAL PARK!!!  Seeing so many people out there just being healthy was a sight to see.  There are some great rolling hills.  It was a beautiful run!

A few hours later we HOOFED it from Times Square to Canal Street in Chinatown.  We took the subway back thank goodness!  Thank you Mr(s). subway inventor!!!

Heading to a Yankees game this evening and plan to consume hotdogs and beer! (All gluten free!!! yea right!)  Tomorrow, we will all do the Rugged Maniac in Brooklyn and head to Coney Island to rinse off in the ocean.  I have never been to Coney Island but I have heard mixed reviews.  Looking forward to it and a Nathan’s hotdog!

Finally, we will visit the Guggenheim and the 9/11 Memorial on our last day.

Any other suggestions????

Whatever we do, I am sure it will be fun and involve walking!
